Eric Simonson

A Conversation with Eric Simonson

by Jake Kring-Schreifels

Magic/Bird, the new Broadway play opening April 11th at the Longacre Theater, chronicles the side-by-side journey of two of basketball’s biggest pioneers, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. The team that created Lombardi, Producers Tony Ponturo and Fran Kirmser, Director Thomas Kail, and Writer Eric Simonson, all reunite to form another sports themed play about players who transcended their sport. In this case, they move from the gridiron to the hardwood and the transition is seamless.

Words with the Writers of Lombardi

by Chris Quagliata

I had the chance to sit down with the author of When Pride Still Mattered, a biography of legendary NFL coach and former Fordham football player and assistant coach Vince Lombardi. I also had a conversation with the playwright for the Broadway play Lombardi, which premieres tomorrow, October 21st in the Circle in the Square Theatre.
